  • Yang fires 9-over 79, makes state golf field

    AURORA -- Three years of waiting is over for Prairie View's Andy Yang.

    His 9-over 79 at the Northern 5A Regional Tournament at Meadow Hills Golf Course was good enough to get a ticket to the state 5A meet in two weeks. The top two teams and the next 13 individuals who aren't part of those two full teams punched tickets to state. Yang finished in 18th place, one shot behind a trio of golfers.

    Meadow Hills is not one of his favorite courses, thanks to a lot of trees.
